Cites virus health concerns

Fear of viral infection by the corona virus means that Swedish vendor Ericsson won't be attending the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next month.

CEO Borje Ekholm said the health and safety of employees and customers “are our highest priority”.

He said that the company has tracked the development of the corona virus and has already taken a “number of precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of employees and to minimise the impact on the company's operations”.

Instead of attending MWC, Ericsson will demonstrate its portfolio at events in various home markets dubbed “Ericsson Unboxed”.
